Game of Thrones, By a Fucking Idiot S8E5: The Bells

Here’s the tea, here’s the real inside scoop (and no, it’s not about the Youtube drama that’s been going on this weekend, but you know, get on that), here’s everything you’ve been waiting to here: keep your voice down, make sure the curtains are drawn, because I’m going to say it.

Game of Thrones, by a Fucking Idiot S8E4: The Last of the Starks

We need to talk about Jon Snow.

And trust me, I’ve done a lot of talking about Jon Snow in the years leading up to this final season. But this week’s episode, The Last of the Starks, really gives me no choice but to address the perma-pouty elephant in the room.

Game of Thrones, by A Fucking Idiot: S8E1: Winterfell

Hey, hey, hey, have you heard of this show? It’s called Game of Thrones. It’s pretty niche, so I don’t even know why I’m writing these recaps, but I figured I would introduce it to my esteeméd blog audience to –

Yeah, okay, enough with that. You all know Game of Thrones is here, and that it’s final season started last night. In the time between this recap and that broadcast, you’ve probably seen dozens of well-written, beautifully-researched, gorgeously-analytical pieces of writing on the show and what it means for popular culture. Too much of that, some might say. So what if you wanted something different? What if you wanted to read Game of Thrones recapped by, say, a fucking idiot?
